February 18, 2007 - Mild temperatures well into January '07 inhibited ice from forming on Lake Ontario. With no ice cover, the bitter cold winds of February brought staggering amounts of lake-effect snow to communities downwind. Oswego County bore the brunt of the onslaught where reports of 7-12 feet of snow fell. New York Governor Eliot Spitzer asked President Bush to declare a federal emergency for the six upstate counties most affected - Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida and Onondaga. The Governor had already declared a state of emergency in Oswego County a week earlier, clearing the way for state aid. To make matters worse, a Nor'easter lumbered over the region on Valentine's Day and dropped another 12-16 inches of snow. After the storm passed, it left behind cold arctic winds which produced even more lake-effect snow.
